My cousin Todd just graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in biology, so he and a few friends (Adam, Brian, Robert, and Jason) are travelling around Europe. They flew into Paris on the 23rd, and after a few days there, spent some time in Barcelona. They happened to be there when Barcelona defeated Manchester United to win the UEFA Champions League (the most prestigious trophy in European socc- um, football), and witnessed the chaotic celebration afterward. I met them in Milan Friday night, and Saturday morning, we went down to the Cinque Terre.
Monday was a recovery/laundry day, which was capped with drinks and dinner joined by some of my friends from work.
It was great hanging out with Todd again and meeting his friends. They're all good kids with bright futures, and I look forward to seeing them again on Friday, and next time I'm in South Carolina.
